American Indian Elders Conference

9/25/2023 - 9/29/2023


American Indian Elders Conference

September 25 - September 29

The National Indian Council on Aging (NICOA) is excited to announce its 24th conference on aging in Indian Country will take place on September 25-29, 2023, at the Harrah’s Cherokee Casino Resort in Cherokee, North Carolina. We look forward to having an exciting conference and hope you’ll join us!

This year’s theme is “A Trail of Determination: Our Culture, Our History and Our Future.” American Indian and Alaska Native elders have always held esteemed positions in their communities. They are the remnants of the cultures of their respective tribes. The cultures they embody are a testament to the history and continued existence of Native peoples.

In the twilight of their years, they represent the flight of the arrow of all that is Native American, and it’s our job to carry their legacy into the future. The culture, the history and the continued existence of Native people in this country is dependent on the willingness of future generations to embrace all that is Native.

This conference is the elders’ opportunity to share their wisdom, experience and knowledge with the world. It is your opportunity to carry the legacies of your elders as well as create your own.

Our biennial conference is the place where elders can educate and recommend solutions to policymakers to help improve aging services across Indian Country. NICOA’s American Indian Elders Conference offers the opportunity to elevate issues in American Indian politics and legislation, as well as focus on issues such as health, safety, financial management, elder abuse, caregiving, employment, retirement and the Older Americans Act.

This will be an opportunity for tribal leaders, policymakers and tribal elders to express their needs and make policy recommendations for the vital events occurring in years to come. The events that follow the 2023 American Indian Elders Conference will shape the policies and laws that will affect Native elders for the next decade. Therefore, tribal leaders, youths, service providers and policymakers are encouraged and welcomed to learn, share and shape those policies.
